Freedom Park
Medford's Freedom Park includes a 30,000 square foot skateboard park.  After three years of planning, the park opened in 2000 to rave reviews. 

The fees for daily, quarterly and yearly use are reasonable, and the rules allow non-township residents to use the facility.

All users must obtain a photo identification membership card or daily pass.  Cards/passes can be obtained from the Medford Recreation Department office, located in Cranberry Hall behind the Medford Municipal Center at 17 N. Main Street. Daily passes may be obtained at New Concepts Hobby Shop - 626 Stokes Road and Zone 44 - Taunton Forge Shopping Center; Tuckerton & Taunton Roads.

For Complete details, visit the Freedom Park web page.

Worldwide Recognition
In 2000, the National Geographic Society selected 65 small towns in the US to be featured in a special publication called "The Guide to Small Town Escapes."  Of course out town made the list,  the only town in New Jersey. 

Here's an excerpt of what they had to say about Medford:
"While Medford is foremost a residential town, a spattering of antique shops and craft boutiques occupy Main Street's walls, purveying century-old dolls and country style armoires, handmade wooden toys and Victorian vases." 

Don't take our town's unique character for granted.  Spend a day exploring our town.  You can start with the Medford Trails Guide to Antique Shops.

A Town With History
Did You Know:

Our famous Kirby's Mill pre-dates the revolutionary war by several years, and remained in operation until 1920. 

On Jennings Road (the little street between the car wash and the Acme)  is the place where the first machine– made cut nails in America were produced using horse– powered machinery. 

The Indian Chef Tavern was originally at Union and Main Streets in the building that is now  The Stagecoach Cafe.  And when it opened in 1810, it really was a stagecoach stop.
